Family Day Weekend at the AGO
Friday, February 14 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:30 am, repeating until Monday, February 17, 2020
It’s all about celebrating families through the theme of Togetherness. The AGO has lots of activities planned gallery-wide! Toronto-based Ness Lee, a recent AGO Artist in Residence, takes over Walker Court for large interactive moments of play as part of the four-day Family Day weekend program. Also, enjoy a family-friendly tour with spoken word artists; plant a seed; build Inventions of Goodness; visit Hito Steyerl: This is the future, see other amazing art in the galleries, or take a much-needed break in our quiet space with soft toys and soothing music. It’s all about Togetherness!
